My fees are £70.00. I have a sliding scale of fees, depending on your circumstances. I also have a small number of low-cost therapy places available for people who are unable to afford private therapy.

What happens when I contact you?

When you make contact by telephone or email we can discuss meeting. This meeting, an initial consultation will last between one and one and a half hours. This will give us an opportunity to meet each other and to decide if we can work together. I hope that you will feel able to talk freely about what has brought you to me, and of any anxieties or expectations you might have. There will also be an opportunity for us to talk about fees, appointment times, cancellations and confidentiality.

How do I know if a counsellor or psychotherapist is qualified to help me?

The UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP) have a register of qualified psychotherapists. They have a code of conduct that therapists have to adhere to. You can visit their website at www.psychotherapy.org.uk. Additionally the BACP also have a register and you can visit their website at www.bacp.co.uk.
